Progress update note
1. During the meeting of SCTIFI that sat in November, 2017, Uganda reported that they are holding meetings with the relevant institutions and will report back to Kenya by December 2017.

2. The EAC Secretariat through their letter C&T 2/2/3 advided that according to Article 8 of the Treaty for Establishemnt of the Wast African Community, EAC Community Laws take precedence over similar national laws on matters pertaining to the implementation of the Treaty. In this regard amendment of the Excise Duty Act makes it discriminatory to similar goods from other Partner States and therefore contravenes Article 15.This means that the Protocol will take precedence uopn transfer of such goods from other PArtner States.
